The artistic talent of Lynbrook High School students was on display as the community came together to celebrate the induction of new members into the National Art Honor Society. The event highlighted the successes of the NAHS and applauded newly inducted sophomores, juniors and seniors.
Michael Kunz, NAHS adviser, introduced the chapter officers, president Katrina Duran and vice president Lauren Keegan, before expressing his admiration for the dedicated members of the NAHS. During the ceremony, 68 new members were inducted. Many students also received special awards, including NAHS Merit Awards, the This Is Me Award, the Junior Award and the NAHS Portfolio Award.
Following the ceremony, guests were free to view artwork in the Seiderman Gallery of the Arts. The gallery displayed various paintings, sculptures and sketches. Every artistic piece reflected the exhibit’s “This Is Me” theme, which allowed the students to truly express themselves in their artwork.
The ceremony celebrates the Lynbrook sophomores, juniors and seniors who have demonstrated high achievements in art. In addition to supporting the arts, members of the Lynbrook High School NAHS have also supported their community with an array of service projects. This year, students raised money for Friends of Zachary Bernstein by selling carved pumpkins at their annual Pumpkin Blaze. Students also contributed to The Memory Project, a non-profit organization that allows students to paint portraits for orphans all over the world. The efforts of the Lynbrook High School NAHS have improved art education throughout the high school as well as the community.
